ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



The acreage, yield, production, monthly, and season average value, and crop 
value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by the 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these statis- 
tics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural Ec- 
onomics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quota- 
tions and shipment statistics are from the Market News Section and the USDA Con- 
sumer and Marketing Service. Other sources of data are cited in footnotes. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in developing statistics in this summary include the Road Guard Section, Division 
of Inspection; State Markets Section, Celery Advisory Committee, and Sweet Corn 
Advisory Committee, Division of Marketing, the Plant Inspection Section, Division 
of Plant Industry and the South Florida Vegetable Exchange. County Agents of Flor- 
ida's Agricultural Extension Service were very helpful in supplying information on 
vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms 
voluntarily supplied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. 
This public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



TfflS PUBLICATION INCORPORATES FINAL RE- 
VISIONS FOR THE 1958-59 THROUGH 1964-65 SEASONS, 
FOLLOWING ANALYSIS OF THE 1964 U. S. CENSUS OF 
AGRICULTURE, U. S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE. 

SEASONAL GROUPS— Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida's vegetable, melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time 
than the entire marketing season. The seasonal classifi- 
cation used for each of Florida's crops is shown on a pre- 
vious page along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has 
been planted for harvest during one designated season. To 
avoid duplication, acreage lost, and replanted to the same 
crop in time for harvest in the same season is counted only 
once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage harvested 
or partially harvested plus any additional acreage which 
reached maturity, but was not harvested due to labor short- 
ages, low prices or other economic conditions. Acreage 
lost before or at maturity through natural causes is not 
included in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality produced per acre and includes any unharvested 
production left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually har- 
vested plus any quantity that was left due to economic 
abandonment. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and is of merchantable quality 
but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors. 

PRODUCTION OF VALUE is that total production 
less the quantity abandoned due to economic reasons. 

UNIT VALUE for production sold on the fresh mar- 



ket represents the F. O. B. price received or its equivalent 
for all grades and quality of the commodity including selling 
charges. Unit value for quantities sold to processors for 
the 1963 fall crop and all prior seasons, represent prices 
paid the grower at the first receiving point. Since that 
time, value is on a delivered to the processing plant door 
basis and includes transportation cost, etc. 

TOTAL VALUE is the value of production sold. It 
excludes economic abandonment, cullage, and any portion 
of a crop not harvested. 

WEEKLY F. O. B. PRICE RANGE — Represents the 
low and high price received for generally good quality. 
Prices shown for Pompano are representative of sales at 
the State Farmer's Market. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the 
straight rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS — Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulations of 
way-bills showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED RAIL CARS — For major commodities the 
quantity shipped in mixed rail loads is tabulated from way- 
bills. The total quantity of each commodity is then con- 
verted to the equivalent of a straight rail car load. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of a predetermined load factor. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT — The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most common- 
ly used container. The following table gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per hun- 
dredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1966-67 SEASON 



Florida growers of vegetables, melons, potatoes, 
and strawberries marketed production during the 1966-67 
season valued at an estimated S256, 343, 000. This was 
less than one percent below the record of the previous 
crop 3 T ear. Vegetable sales accounted for 84 percent of 
the gross total and sales were up about 7. 5 million dollars 
from the previous year. Melons sold for 9 percent less 
than the gross of 1966. Strawberries were down a signifi- 
cant 16percentin total value. Potatoes, due to the adverse 
effect of the late February freeze on the spring crop, were 
reduced 25 percent. Sales at $16, 709. 000 compared with 
$22,162,000 in 1966. 

Preparation for the 1966-67 crop began before the 
1965-66 spring acreage was all harvested. Land cleaning, 
ditching, and dyking were underway ear ly. Celery and egg- 
plant seedbeds were planted for late July or August trans- 
planting. Seeding of fall tomatoes began in late July with 
nearly 17, 000 acres planted by September 2. Sweet corn 
planting began in August in the Everglades area, and by 
September2, a total of 5, 400 acres had been planted. Celery 
set during the same time was a little over 1, 000 acres and 
was confined to the Everglades and Zellwood mucklands. 
Beans were being seeded in Gadsden County 7 , and in North 
Florida during August. Peppers were being seeded in the 
Pompano-Martin and Ft. Myers -Immokalee areas; some 
were emerging before the end of August. Frequent summer 
showers, often locally heavy, kept soil moisture adequate 
to excessive. 



September started off dry and sunny. Pole beans 
in Gadsden County were growing well, but early bush beans 
in North Florida were rather poor. Seeding continued and 
increased southward as the month advanced. Pole beans 
seeding started in Dade County on September 12. Showers 
were erratic: some growers were irrigating as others coped 
with excess moisture. Early cucumbers and squash were 
growing, and seeding was increasing southward during 
September. By mid-September limited harvest was under- 
way in North and West Florida. 

October and Hurricane Inez practically arrived to- 
gether. Planting of tender vegetables waited out the storm. 
South Dade County crops were severely damaged, being di- 
rectly in the Hurricane path. Other South Florida points sus- 
tained wind burn and loss of bloom. By mid -October weath- 
er conditions had become conducive to improved plant con- 
dition. Harvest was increasing gradually. The State was 
becomingdry, but by month's end there was rain again, lo- 
cally heavy alongthe Lower East Coast where some tender 
vegetables were a complete loss or were severely damaged. 
Heaviest rain occurred in Broward County west of Pompano. 

Cold rushed in with November. Frost and freezing 



temperatures were quite general over all but South Florida 
November 3-4. Heaviest damage was tobeans for proces- 
sing at Zellwood. Frost occurred over the north third of 
the State, with scattered frost Central, November 25 and 
again November 29 through December 2, extending south- 
ward into the Everglades damaging crops in colder loca- 
tions there. The coldest weather of the season to date was 
on December 25. Some localities reported it to be the 
coldest Christmas day of record. Frost was general ex- 
cept along the Lower East Coast. Other cold front pas- 
sages brought scattered frost, but nothing serious. Volume 
of all vegetables and potatoes shipped interstate through the 
fall season to the end of the year was about 4. 3 million 
hundredweight. 3 percent less than the 3-year average. 

In Immokalee a near 3 inch, one-day rain fell in 
late J anuary adversely affecting the tomato crop. The week 
of February 5-11, rainfall totals were heaviest of the sea- 
son. Gusty, southwest winds accompanied by showers and 
thundershowers preceded a cold front, bringing 3 -day totals 
ranging generally from 2 to 4 inches North and Central, 
and about a half -inch South. Rainfall soon again took this 
same pattern, though not quite as heavy northward. 

Above normal seasonal temperatures plunged to 
record lows over most of the State, Sunday, February 7 26. 
It brought a killing freeze to North Florida, followed by a 
heavy frost the 27th. Spring potatoes at Hastings, Gaines- 
ville, and in the West Central counties were damaged se- 
verely. Much lost acreage was replanted to other, faster 
-maturing crops; some were salvaged, and some abandoned 
outright. South Dade County and Ft. Myers had 32 degrees 
or below in wind-protected areas. The Orlando district 
reported 28 degrees or lower for about 8 hours. Tomatoes 
for spring harvest were damaged severely in West Central 
and North Central fields, and replanting was heavy. 

Above normal temperatures soon followed. March 
12, highs of 89 degrees at Tallahassee, and Jacksonville's 
91 established new records for this early in the season. 
Locally heavy showers measured up to 6 inches on the 
Lower East Coast on the 8th of March. The balance of 
March, most of April, and May were predominantly dry. 
Temperatures were variable but often quite hot. The 
drought eased somewhat in mid-May. Showers became 
more frequent, taking on the characteristics of a typical 
summer rainy season by the first of June. A tropical dis- 
turbance formed in the Caribbean on June 10, and later 
brought torrential rains to South Florida. Weather condi- 
tions in Central areas northward permitted most harvest 
to be completed in late June, but some commodities har- 
vested well into July, especially in North Florida and Cen- 
tral muckland areas. Celery, sweet corn, eggplant, 
melons, and a few peppers were the most important com- 
modities harvesting this late.

LIMA BEANS 
1966-67 



During 1966-67 an estimated 84,000 bushels were 
harvested from 900 acres compared to 91,000 the previous 
season from 1, 000 acres. Value of beans sold was $351, 000 
compared to $345, 000 the previous season. 

Lima bean production includes Fordhook, baby 
limas. and speckled butter beans. All acreage is included 
in one estimate beginning with the 1958-59 season, and is 
classified as spring. Early harvest began in North Flor- 
ida and Plant City during late October then shifted to Pom- 
pano for a light movement through the winter and early 
spring. Heaviest production is in the spring and consists 
of small widely scattered acreages. A high percentage of 
the beans produced are consumed within the State. 



Interstate shipments are no longer reported daily, 
but are combined with the total miscellaneous vegetables 
and separated at the end of the season. About 55 carlots 
moved interstate with the heaviest movement in May and 
June. This is comparable to that of last year. Some early 
acreage was killed by the February 26 freeze in the Plant 
City area, but generally the crop was not adversely affected 
by weather extremes. 

It is doubtful that large scale production will be 
undertaken until such time as thedemand for shelled, fresh 
or contract beans for processing increases substantially. 
There has been some evidence of interest for both in recent 
years.

SNAP BEANS 
1966-67 



Florida produced an estimated 5, 490, 000 bushels 
of bush and pole beans during the 1966-67 season compar- 
ed to 5 , 233 , 000 the previous year. Of this amount, 837 , 000 
bushelswere used in processing during the 1966-67 season 
compared to 817, 000 bushels the previous season. 

Southeast Florida has been traditionally, and again 
this season, the principal area of bush and pole bean pro- 
duction. Bush beans grown in the Pompano area, which 
is located on the Lower East Coast in Broward and Palm 
Beach Counties, accounted for 44% of the 1966-67 produc- 
tion. This was from 27, 400 acres harvested and was heavy 
to the Harvester variety. In Dade County 1, 647, 000 bush- 
els of pole beans were harvested from 5, 725 acres making 
this the outstanding producing area of pole beans in the 
State. The Everglades has been the outstanding muckland 
area of bean production for many years. However, only 
656, 000 bushels wereproduced here during the seasonfrom 
approximately 5,800 harvested acres. Here production 
was only one-third the volume of the 1956-57 season, ten 
years earlier, and was only 22% of that which was produced 
twenty years ago. 

The outstanding area of beans for processing is in 



the Zellwood mucklands of Central Florida where almost 
the entire acreage is contracted for processing. During 
the past season only a fall crop was grown. Frost in early 
November killed a high percentage of these beans and low- 
ered production on those which were salvaged. A small 
acreage was grown in West Central Counties primarily 
marketing at Plant City -- both bush and pole varieties. 
Pole beans here are heavy to the 191 variety, while those 
in Dade County are planted heavy to McCaslins and the 
newer Dade variety. 



Early harvest of Gadsden County pole beans was in- 
terrupted by heavy rain in late September. Early plant- 
ings of pole beans in Dade County were killed or severely 
damaged by salt spray blown in by Hurricane Inez in Octo- 
ber. The frost of early November also damaged fall beans 
in Plant City. The severe freeze of February 26 cut yields 
on the Lower East Coast and foliage sustained considerable 
burn. Early beans at Plant City were mostly killed, how- 
ever, north of this area very few were up to be damaged. 
In all cases, beans for processing are machine harvested 
and now a considerable portion going into fresh market 
channels are harvested mechanically.

CABBAGE 
1966-67 



Florida cabbage produced during the 1966-67 season 
was estimated at 6,468,000 crates and bags from 15,400 
acres harvested out of 17, 500 acres planted. The value of 
thecrop was estimated at $10, 672, 000 which compares with 
$10, 597, 000 the previous season. 



Most cabbage grown in Florida is transplanted with 
plants grown in local seedbeds. Some early season plants 
are brought in from Georgia and the Carolinas. Some 
acreage is directly seeded to the field and thinned with 
some transplanting from the thinnings. Earliest harvest 
was from the directly seeded acreage in the Zellwood area 
and started the second week of November. Harvest from 
transplantings in the Hastings and Sanford areas began 
about the first of December. Heaviest shipments occurred 
during March with 25% of the crop reported for the month. 
The Hastings area endeavors to get more of their cabbage 
marketed prior to active potato harvest in late April. In 
Central Florida the harvest period lasts longer than in any 



other area of the State with shipments as late as the first 
of June. 



Weather conditions were quite favorable to growth, 
good yields, and heavy production. Many growers used hy- 
brid seed which is high yielding in fairly uniform head 
size. A good portion of the Hastings crop had been har- 
vested before the heavy frost on February 27. The remain- 
ing acreage was damaged and quality lowered but very little 
was a complete loss. About 39% of the total acreage was 
planted in the Hastings area and only 200 acres were re- 
ported as a complete loss. Heaviest losses occurred in 
the Everglades area, where planted acreage is 47% less 
than that of 10 years ago. In the Sanford -Oviedo area, dry 
weather during March, April, and May retarded growth and 
reduced head size; so that considerable cabbage did not 
size sufficiently to market and thereby reduced production 
in that area. In the Zellwood area both early and late plant- 
ings are on newly developed sandland soils.

CANTALOUPS 
1966-67 



Florida growers produced an estimated 90,000cwt. 
of cantaloups during the 1967 spring season from 1,000 
acres harvested. This acreage is 200 acres less than was 
harvested the previous year, but the production is the same 
as yields were appreciably higher. The crop value of 
$468, 000 was identical to the previous year. This is pre- 
dominantly a spring crop; however, occasionally small 
acreages are grown earlier for local consumption. In 1967, 
210 cars were reported movingfrom Florida; however, all 
of the movements during March and considerable during 
April were imports — 87 cars of the 210 were grown out- 
side the continental United States. Heaviest movement of 
Florida grown "loups" was in May. Alachua County is the 



heaviest planter in the State with about a third of the crop 
grown there. Earliest harvest is obtained from the crops 
grown in Southwest Florida marketed through Ft. Myers 
and Immokalee. The acreage in Southwest Florida is har- 
vested about the same time and is planted heaviest in Mar- 
tin County. Very little damage was done by extremes of 
weather since few were up in North Central to be killed by 
the late February freeze. However, any above ground in 
Central Florida were lost and replanted. 

Shipments are mainly bulk and insufficient to war- 
rant daily reports by the Market News Service.

CELERY 
1966-67 



Florida celery production during 1966-67 totaled 
8,715,000 crates compared with 8,242,000 the previous 
year. Value of sales was $19,192,000 compared with 
$23, 615, 000 the previous year, reflecting the 42 cents re- 
duction in average value received and the lesser quantit}' 
sold. Growers planted 13, 000 acres compared with 12,400 
the previous year. 

The Everglades had continuous supplies from late 
October through mid-June, with 79% of the State's planted 
acreage. Other producing areas are Central Florida, Sara- 
sota, and Island Grove. Zellwood growers cut celery the 
first week of November and finished in late December to 
start again in mid -April. Supplies from the Zellwood area 
continued into late June. The sandland crop at Sanford was 
harvested primarily during January, February, and March. 



Oviedo harvest continued into spring from its muckland 
acreage and finished about June 10. Sarasota growers also 
harvested primarily during January, February, andMarch. 
but a small late acreage continued to mid-May. Celery in 
the Island Grove area of North Florida is grown in muck- 
land soils of Alachua County. Generally the extremes of 
weather did not adversely affect the crop. However, the 
freeze of late February did shock some plantings into later 
boltingjWith cullage of these "seeders" causing some loss 
of acreage and lowering of the potential production. 

The Florida Fresh Fruit Exchange administrates 
the celery marketing order. Their field supervisors pro- 
vide planting, harvesting, and production data. In coopera- 
tion, SRS assembles these data into weekly and monthly 
reports to the participating industry.

SWEET CORN 
1966-67 



Florida sweet corn production during 1966-67 at 
10,638,000 crates sold for an average value of $2.47; 20 
cents higher than the previous year's average. The crop 
was valued at $26,255,000. Growers planted 60,500 acres 
of which 56, 100 acres were harvested. This was about 3% 
less than was planted the previous season, but the harvest- 
ed acreage was about 2% more and yields averaged 10% 
better. 



The heaviest producing area in the State is in the 
important Everglades mucklands where approximately two- 
thirds of the crop was planted and 58% was produced. 
Yields averaged lighter in this area. Practically all of the 
fall crop was grown in the Everglades with the harvest 
starting the first week of October. Supplies were heavy 
until late November. Frost damage of November 29 and 
again December 2 was relatively light considering the large 
acreage; however, colder locations did sustain losses. 



Some forced harvest occurred and some acreage was lost 
outright. As the Everglades supply declined in late Decem- 
ber, harvest began in the Pompanoarea which is an impor- 
tant source through April supplemented by lesser supplies 
from South Dade County and the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area. 
The Pompano harvest in late December was followed by the 
southwest counties in mid-January and Dade County in early 
February. The Everglades came into their heavy spring 
season in April and continued through early June. At Zell- 
wood growth was rapid and maturity was earlier than nor- 
mal, beginning in mid-May. Volume supplies at Zellwood 
occurred in early June and continued into early July. Both 
South Florida and the Zellwood areas operated under a mar- 
keting exchange primarily for promotional purposes this 
season. Only minor damage occurred to the sweet corn 
crops during the season with the exception of the late No- 
vember cold in the Everglades. Other areas of production 
are minor and are confined to scattered areas in West, Cen- 
tral, and North Florida.

CUCUMBERS 
1966-67 



Florida produced 3, 158, 000 bushels of cucumbers 
during the 1966-67 season, compared to 3, 904, 000 bush- 
els last year. The 16, 400 acres planted was 4 percent 
less than the previous year, and the 15, 000 acres harvest- 
ed was 2 percent less than last year. The value of sales 
was $12,187,000 with an average value of $3.86, fifty- 
three cents per bushel higher than a year ago. 

The acreage and production listed here does not 
include pickles or saline and sterilized processing — this 
portion of the crop is included in miscellaneous acreage 
and production. 

With the 1964 Census revisions, the winter crop as 
a seasonal group was dropped. The fall crop now includes 
production through February, and the spring crop produc- 
tion begins March 1. This change begins with the 1958-59 
season. 

Since this crop is especially adapted to sandy soil, 
cucumbers are grown almost statewide with the exception 



of the muckland areas. The South West Counties lead with 
40 percent of the total production and 42 percent of the 
planted acreage. Light production from this area started 
about September 25 and reached volume in mid-November. 
Supplies tapered off in January and were very light in Feb- 
ruary and early March. Peak spring harvest in this area 
is during April. West Central counties produce both a 
fall and spring crop. This is traditionally a high-yielding 
area and production accounts for about 30 percent of the 
State' s total. Wauchulais the center of supplies with Bowl- 
ing Green, Zolfo Springs, and Arcadia harvesting at the 
same time. In South East Florida, Dade, Pompano, and 
Martin counties are in production over a longer continuous 
period than any other area of the State. The North Central 
area is increasing in production of both pickle and table- 
stock. Some new sandlands have been brought into produc- 
tion in the Zellwood area. North Florida has very widely 
scattered acreage in the fall with more pronounced areas 
of production in the spring. Following the late February 
freeze, considerable acreage was planted in the Hastings 
area.

EGGPLANT 
1966-67 



Eggplant production in Florida during the 1966-67 
seasonwas at 1, 179, 000 bushels compared with 1, 157, 000 
produced the previous season. The production came from 
2,200 acres harvested. This was less than planted the 
previous year by 6%, but yields averaged slightly better. 
The average value was $2. 29 per bushel for a total valu- 
ation of $2,700,000, 3Sc more than the previous year. 



Pompano is the principal producing area of the 
State. This area produced an estimated 928, 600 bushels, 
79% of the total produced in the State. Shipments of this 
relatively minor crop are practically year round. The 
heaviest shipping period was in the fall, extending into 
January and again in March and April with January the 
leading month of the year. February was low month for 
shipping since eggplant is a hot weather crop and produc- 
tion is normalry at its lowest point in mid-season. In re- 
cent years, production during the lowest shipping season 
has been supplemented by imports coming through Florida 
channels for repacking and distribution. In late September 



harvest had started in North Florida, but was not signifi- 
cant until late October. In late October harvest was well 
underway from the widely scattered plantings in both North 
and Central areas extending southward through Arcadia. 
At Pompano disease became a problem in some fields with 
bloom drop heavy following locally excessive rain. How- 
ever, little if any acreage was a complete loss. On the 
morning of November 4 the earliest frost of the season 
killed most of the plants in North Florida and damaged 
scattered plantings in Central Florida. In mid-December 
the Pompano pack-out was reduced considerably because 
of wind scar. From late December through most of April 
shipments originated in the Pompano area primarily with 
limited supplies from the Ft. Myers -Immokalee area. 
Following the freeze and frost of late February, most 
acreage transplanted was being reset. In North Florida 
some plants were damaged in beds. Early harvest started 
in Plant City in early May. Supplies increased as the month 
advanced and by late May harvest had started in North 
Florida. The season closed with harvest centering in the 
North and Central widely scattered plantings.

ESCAROLE 
1966-67 



Escarole and chicory or endive production in Florida 
during 1966-67 was estimated at 3, 080, 000 crates compared 
to 3, 240, 000 the previous season. Only 7, 500 acres were 
planted compared to 8, 600 the previous year and the 7,000 
acres harvested was 1, 100 acres less than was harvested 
the previous year. The lighter production sold well and 
averaged $1. 35 per crate, 15 cents more than the $1.20 
average of the previous year. The value of the crop at 
$4,158,000 was nearly 7% greater than the value of the 
1965-66 crop. The crop is grown primarily in muckland 
soils and is generally spoken of as part of the "leaf" crop. 
Harvest stretched over a long period from late October 
through early June. April was the peak month of ship- 
ments. The Everglades area is the principal producer with 
approximately 66% of the production harvested in this area. 
The planted acreage at 5,000 was two-thirds of the State's 
total. Light seeding began in early September and gradu- 
ally increased as the season advanced. By early October 
thinning of first plantings was underway with light harvest 
for local market beginning the last week of the month. 
Frost during the first half of January resulted in some 
stripping of outer leaves. In late January high tempera- 



tures, showers, heavy dews, and fogs were unfavorable 
for proper growth. Frost again on January 29 and 30 burn- 
ed leaves of mature plants. The freeze of late February 
was not severe in the Everglades areas, as a result only 
minor leaf burn was sustained and harvest continued. Har- 
vest began declining after mid-April and continued in a 
very limited way through May. Zellwood is the second 
area of importance with two periods of heavy production. 
Harvest began in late October. The early supplies went 
primarily to local markets and shipments increased grad- 
ually as the month advanced. Some tip burn resulted from 
the early frost of November 4 and again in early Decem- 
ber. Shipments were limited in quantity during the mid- 
season period. Some acreage was planted on sand land 
between the muck pockets as an insurance of supply since 
the muck soils are more susceptible to low temperatures 
than the nearby warmer sands. Supplies increased sharply 
with spring production. Supplies became moderate in late 
March with active harvest quite general through April and 
May terminating in early June. Supplies from these two 
major areas were supplemented by lesser amounts grown 
at Sarasota and Lake Placid.

LETTUCE 
1966-67 



Florida growers produced 351, 000 cwt. of the var- 
ious lettuces during the 1966-67 season, 8% less than was 
grown the previous season, but 25% more than the 1961- 
65 average. The 4, 500 acres planted was only 100 acres 
less than the previous season but 21% more than average. 
The value of the crop was $2, 632, 000, only slightly higher 
than last year. Nearly 50% of the crop was grown in the 
Everglades with Central Florida the second heaviest pro- 
ducer, harvesting 32% of the entire crop. Other produc- 
ing areas were principally Lake Placid and Sarasota with 
a minor amount from the Lower East Coast. 

Heavy production is in Romaine lettuce followed by 
Boston, Iceberg, leaf lettuces, and Bibb. Consumption 
within the State is rather heavy especially of Iceberg and 
Bibb varieties. 

Most muckland areas are directly seeded in the 
field and thinned to a normal stand at the proper stage of 
growth. Seeding was underway in the Everglades, Lake 
Placid, Sarasota, and Zellwood in September. The crop 
is rather susceptible to extremes of temperatures which will 
cause plants to form seeders. Heavy rain or wind-blown 
muck soils will cause the crop to have a dirty appearance 
with some muck within the joints of the leaves. Shipments 



from the Everglades were distributed over a long period. 
Light supplies were available for local market in late Oc- 
tober. Supplies of variable amounts continued throughout 
most of the season which ended in early May. The crop 
was quite variable in quality and quantity. Zellwood pro- 
duction was heaviest during the fall and spring periods of 
the year. The early crop was planted heavy to Romaine 
and Boston with lesser amounts of Bibb and leaf varieties 
and a little Iceberg. Early harvest for local market was 
during October. Harvest increased to volume supplies the 
second week of November. Minor leaf burn resulted from 
the early November cold and frost. Supplies were rather 
limited during the midseason period, but early April har- 
vest was slowly increasing as the late plantings neared 
completion. Harvest from this area continued through 
April and a good portion of May with supplies very limited 
during the latter part of the month. Iceberg is grown 
mainly in Central Florida and harvested in late Novem- 
ber. Some Boston and Romaine were grown in the sand- 
lands of Sanford as well as rather steady supplies from 
Oviedo. Sarasota and Lake Placid grew various varie- 
ties and harvested over a rather extended period from De- 
cember through April.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1966-67 



Pepper production in Florida during 1966-67 was 
estimated at 5, 775, 000 bushels compared to 5, 525, 000 dur- 
ing 1965-66. The 17, 000 acres planted were 900 less than 
that planted the previous season. 

The value of last year's crop was estimated at 
820,332,000, nearly 7% more than the previous season. 
Forty-six percent of the production was grown in the south- 
eastern counties, made up mainly of Broward, Palm Beach 
East, and Martin, with Palm Beach East the major pro- 
ducer. Nearly 39% of the State's total production is grown 
in Southwest Florida and is shipped from Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee, but considerable production is packed and sold 
at Belle Glade and Pompano. A very small acreage is 
grown in Central Florida during the fall season, but in May 
and June production shifts to Central and North Florida with 
heavy supplies moving from Plant City, Webster, Sanford, 
Samsula, and finishes up in the area north of Gainesville. 
Harvest in South Florida was continuous after starting in 
November. The peak shipping period was from January 
through May with about 18% of the shipments moving dur- 
ing May — March was almost as heavy. 

Most of the South Florida crop is directly seeded 
in the field and planting began in August. Young plants 
are susceptible to hot weather and overhead irrigation was 
often necessary. In late September and again in late Oc- 



tober locally heavy rains damaged some fields. Wind blown 
sand was also a deterrent to young plant condition, especi- 
ally in the Pompano-Martin area. Most South Florida pep- 
pers escaped serious damage from Hurricane Inez, but 
some acreage was lost in Pompano-Martin area and re- 
seeding or setting was necessary. Limited harvest, es- 
pecially, started in the Pompano-Martin area in early No- 
vember and in the Ft. Myers -Immokalee area in mid-No- 
vember. Both areas increased as the season advanced, but 
with no appreciable volume until December. The small 
Central Florida acreage was harvesting during November 
and December, but by mid-December most fields were in 
the clean up stage. During January through April harvest 
was concentrated in the South Peninsula areas. Variable 
weather interrupted harvest only temporarily and relative- 
ly steady supplies were available. The late February 
freeze slowed harvest in the Ft. Myers -Immokalee area 
in particular, and damage was variable. Many plants were 
killed back, particularly the older plantings. Plant City, 
Webster, and Sanford had severe losses even in plant beds. 
Plants in beds in North Florida sustained considerable 
damage also. Light harvest began in the West Central 
counties the third week of April and in the Central areas in 
early May. Harvest in North Florida began in late May 
and continued heavy through June.

IRISH POTATOES 
1966-67 



Production of Irish potatoes in Florida during the 
1967 season was 4, 778, 000 cwt. , a sharp reduction of 24% 
from the previous year's record 6, 294. 000 cwt. The 45.000 
acres planted were only 200 acres more than the previous 
year's planted acreage. The acreage harvested was esti- 
mated at only 36, 100 acres, making acreage lost the largest 
on record. The value of the crop was estimated at 
$16,709,000, or 25% less than the value of the previous 
season's crop. 

The large spring acreage loss was a result of the 
February 26 freeze and heavy frost on the following morn- 
ing. The Hastings area in particular was damaged severely. 
Crops in the Balm area were also seriously damaged as 
well as some of the acreage in the Gainesville area. In 
the Hastings area 30,000 acres were planted, but only 
21, 600 were harvested, producing 2, 376, 000 cwt. 

Winter growers harvested 11,900 acres out of 12 , 000 
planted with a very good yield which averaged 180 cwt. for 
the season. Although some "whites" were grown, "reds" 
planted were heavy to LaSoda and LaRouge varieties. 



Weather conditions delayed harvest and a larger than nor- 
mal percentage was harvested during April. 

South Dade County continued to be the principal pro- 
ducer of winter potatoes with about 73% of the winter pro- 
duction coming from this area. Yields were especially 
good at 205 cwt. per acre. Southwest Florida produced 
about 22% of the winter crop and most of the balance came 
from Palm Beach County, which harvested the earliest 
"whites" before mid-December. 

The value of the 1967 Hastings production was es- 
timated at $7,484, 000, a reduction of 47% of the previous 
year and about $11, 000, 000 less than the record high value 
of 1965 production. Plantings in North Florida areas were 
estimatedat 3,000 acres, the same as the previous spring. 
Yields were low because of the freeze and production was 
only 260,000 cwt. , which sold for $871,000. Principal 
areas of other spring production were in the West Central 
counties centering in Hillsborough County. A small spring 
acreage is also grown in the Everglades mucklands and in 
extreme West Florida.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1967 



Spinach for processing grown during 1967 centered 
in the mucklands of Lake and Orange Counties. The 2,400 
acres planted was 300 acres less than the previous winter. 
Production at 12,500 tons was somewhat higher than the 
previous years. Total value of the crop delivered to the 
plant was estimated at $541, 000. 

The value per unit is based on the usable spinach 



delivered to the processing door. Value prior to 1964 
represents the amount paid the grower at the first receiv- 
ing point. Utilization is mainly by plants located in the 
southeastern States — mostly Alabama, Florida, and 
Georgia, by. canners and freezers. This crop can stand 
considerable cold. Frost is desirable from time to time 
for weed control. The 1967 crop year proved to be one of 
the better years for production of this crop.

SQUASH 
1966-67 



Florida produced 1,205, 000 bushels of squash dur- 
ing 1966-67 from 8, 300 acres harvested. The value was 
estimated at $5, 127, 000 making this a record high year for 
value of sales. 



Shipments were made from the State every month 
in the year though very small in September 1966 and in June 
and July 1967. Heaviest movement was in January and 
February. Shipments in March declined as a result of the 
late February freeze. Harvest was underway in late Sep- 
tember in North and Central from widely scattered plant- 
ings. Later in the fall a more pronounced pattern took place 
with production from North Florida and Plant City in partic- 
ular continuing until curtailed by frost in early November. 
However, some fields escaped withminor damage and con- 
tinued in production. Almost continuous harvest occurs in 
the important Southeast Coast area where marketing is pri- 
marily in Pompano and Homestead. This Lower East 
Coast area produced about 59% of the entire crop grown 
in the State. In South Dade County plantings are heavy to 
yellow crook necked varieties and are shipped mainly in 
mixed loads with pole beans. In the last few years some 
production of other soft varieties has increased. At Pom- 



pano, hybrid zucchini has taken the lead followed by heavy 
supplies of yellow straight neck or yellow prolific, which 
is a large straight yellow variety of a milder flavor than 
the yellow crook neck. These two varieties make up the 
heavy volume for this area. Southwest Florida counties 
produce a fair volume accounting for about 17% of the State's 
production. Both green and yellow soft squash varieties 
are grown; however, this area is considered a major pro- 
ducer of acorn varieties, some of which market locally and 
some through channels in the Pompano marketing area. 
Plant City was the principal center in the West Central 
counties both fall and spring and was heavy to yellow crook 
neck varieties. Here again the yellow crooked neck are 
grown to accompany pole beans moving in mixed loads to 
the southern trade in particular. Most varieties are grown 
in North Florida but production is heavy to yellow straight 
neck and zucchini. 

Early plantings in the Plant City area were damaged 
by the late February freeze and were reseeded. Only a 
small percentage of the crop had been planted and hardly 
any North of Plant City. The cold lowered plant condition 
in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area but the Lower East Coast 
mainly escaped with little injury.

STRAWBERRIES 
1966-67 



Florida produced anestimated 1, 717, 000 flats dur- 
ing 1967 from an estimated 2, 000 acres harvested. Pro- 
duction was 16% less than the previous season and 41%less 
than the recent high of 1965 when growers were unable to 
harvest all of their production. The trend has been since 
1965 to plant less acreage each year. The average value 
per flat has fluctuated very little in the last five years and 
averaged $3. 37 in 1967. The quantity sold was valued at 
$5, 790,000, 16% less than the previous year and 28% less 
than the peak 1965 season. 

It is generally considered that the high price and 
scarcity of labor for harvest are the principal reasons for 



the decline in production of strawberries in Florida. Near- 
ly 40% of the crop was shipped in March with almost 29% 
in February and 19% in April, after which shipments were 
utilized primarily in local markets. Southeast coastal area 
accounted for 53% of the production with centers of supply 
mainly in Lake Worth and South Dade County. The West 
Central Counties centering primarily in Plant City and 
Palmetto accounted for 34% of the State's production. The 
balance was grown in the North Florida area centering at 
Starke and in minor acreages planted in Central Florida. 
The freeze of late February damaged bloom in Plant City 
andPalmetto^educing harvest. North Floridahas started 
light picking and it was terminated to resume after the 
bloom and development of a completely new crop.

TOMATOES 
1966-67 



Florida produced 18,238,000 equivalent 40-pound 
crates of fresh tomatoes during the 1966-67 season from 
46, 600 acres harvested. An additional 4, 020 equivalent 40 
-pound crates were utilized by canners mostly within the 
State. The average value of fresh tomatoes were S3. 97 per 
crate and the average price per crate for processing was 
$. 73 delivered to the canning plant,making total value of 
the crop $75,326,000. This value was about 5% greater 
than that of the previous year's crop. 

Florida's tomato crop is divided into two categories 
by types of harvest. The bulk of the crop is designated as 
mature greens with 42,420 acres or 86% of the planted 
acreage in this category. The balance was planted to vine 
ripes which were grown primarily in the Pompano -Martin 
and Immokalee-Naples areas. The 6,570 acres that were 
harvested were high yielding^ averaging 769 forty -pound 
crates per acre and accounting for nearly 28% of the fresh 
crop grown in Florida. Most vine-ripes are picked with a 
flush of pink in ripeness with select sizes and quality going 
into eight -pound flats. However, use of this container has 
declined appreciably in the last two years and the largest 
volume moved to market packed in twenty-pound units. 



Mature greens are packed almost totally in forty-pound 
units. 

The Crop Reporting Service for the first time has 
changed the unit of reporting from the sixty -pound crate to 
the now commonly used forty-pound crate and converted 
prior statistics through the 1958-59 season to this unit. 

Hurricane Inez entered the Lower EastCoast south 
of Miami on October 4, bringing wind-blown salt deposits 
from the Bay to all foliage through the south Dade tomato 
area. Most fields were irrigated with freshwater immed- 
iately after the storm, but losses were heavy. Following 
the freeze of late February, the Ft. Myers -Immokalee 
area reported minor freeze damage with maturity advanced 
because of cold shock. In Ft. Pierce freeze damage was 
spotty. In West Central and North Central counties dam- 
age was extensive from the late February freeze and much 
resetting was necessary. 

Tomatoes harvested for processing follows fresh 
market harvest and processing supplies were available into 
early July.

WATERMELONS 
1966-67 



Florida produced 8,265,000 cwt. of watermelons 
during 1967 from 57,000 acres harvested out of 60,000 
acres planted. Prices averaged S2. 10 cwt. , 20 cents high- 
er than that of the previous spring, making the value of 
the crop $17, 356, 000, 9% less than the previous season's. 
The shipping season occurred from April thru June ex- 
tending into July with relatively light supplies. Earliest 
harvest began in the important Immokalee area. These 
southwest counties produced about 24^ of the State's total 
from one-sixth of the planted acreage. Other South Flor- 
ida counties grew about 22% of the State's total. North 
Florida grew more watermelons than any other area of the 
State. Growers planted 21,400 acres and produced nearly 
33%of the State's total crop. West Florida produced slight- 
ly more than 10% of the State total. Prices per month av- 
eraged closer to the season average than in past years. 
The April average of $2. 80 compared with the previous 
April, $4. 15 and was indicative of the volume from the 
Immokalee area at that time. Planting in the Immokalee 
areabeganin late November and was completed in January. 
Other South Florida counties began seeding in early Janu- 



ary and planting increased northward until the entire crop 
was finished planting in March. General frost in late Jan- 
uary damaged crops north of Immokalee. Oldest plantings 
at that time had some runners 12 to 18 inches long. The 
severe freeze of late February 7 resulted in older melons 
being damaged in the Immokalee area. West Central coun- 
ties reported damage ranging up to 60 r c kill in some fields. 
Most losses were replanted. Harvest started in the Immok- 
alee area in early April and continued to increase until 
late April and held its peak through May 10. The extended 
dry weather adversely affected crops in Central and the 
important Chiefland-Trenton-Newberry areas as well as 
other sections north and westward, without irrigation. 
Harvest began in Levy County on May 26, but supplies 
were very light. Unirrigated fields were pruned heavily 
and the second set was benefited in late May by rain. 
Meanwhile crops in West Florida that had no rain were 
practically at a standstill. A few melons were clipped in 
Columbia County the first week of June and irrigated fields 
in West Florida started cutting about the first of June and 
were in full swing with good quality into July.
